    Slab for 2 with 4 sides, and the banana pudding will give you a good idea of what the Memphis BBQ experience is all about! Wash it all down with a six-pack of Yuengling beer, call it a good meal.

    Only Pepsi products, but sweet tea is decent. My standards include: Dry-rub hot wings (full order) w/ ranch or turkey plate w/ greens + mac-n-cheese. My wife loves the BBQ salad w/ ranch + bbq sauce

    As good as the location at Central but with easier parking, larger tables and less of a hassle ordering at the counter. It's not as hip in this ex-Red Lobster building but who cares!

    The full rack of ribs is a feast of some of the best ribs in Memphis! Get it dry and dip in the hot BBQ sauce.

    The popular choices are dry rub ribs and BBQ nachos, both good choices. But the underrated favorite in my book is the turkey sandwich. Amazing.

    BBQ nachos hands down the best. 1/2 order is more than enough for one person.

    If you're not a fan of bbq, try the nachos with no sauce or the portobello salad!

    You can't go wrong with pulled pork or ribs. If you are feeling adventurous, go for the pig nachos. We love them. Think about saving space for the homemade desserts too. My fave is caramel cake!

    Turn around, get back in your car and take a left on Summer to go to Tops. Better BBQ and beans.
